Alex Spencer, a student from Laurus Ryecroft, released his debut single today after signing a record deal with Modern Sky.

His debut single, ‘A Night To Waste, tells the tale of life as a teenager growing up in the suburbs.

Alex said it’s about “enjoying our time whilst we’re young” as “none of us have a night to waste.”

Since writing songs in lockdown, Alex has gone from strength to strength.

He went from busking on the streets of Manchester to performing to 20,000 people at the AO Arena for the Young Voices concert last year.

Influenced by the likes of Jake Bugg and Sam Fender, Alex is making a name for himself in the singer-songwriter scene.

His new single is already making waves on it’s first day and has been chosen as XS Manchester’s Record of the Week!
